John Hancock, CRG to Develop 1 MSF Distribution Center in South Atlanta
LOCUST GROVE, GA. — John Hancock Real Estate and CRG are teaming up to develop a 1 million-square-foot industrial building located in Locust Grove, roughly 30 miles south of Atlanta in the city’s South Atlanta industrial submarket. The facility will feature 36-foot clear heights, 236 trailer spaces, 148 dock-high doors and 386 parking spaces. CRG’s parent company Clayco will serve as the design-builder, and its subsidiary Forum Studio is the architect on the project. Situated a half mile from the Interstate 75-Bill Garner Parkway interchange, the facility will be the first component of a 311-acre development that can accommodate 4.5 million square feet of industrial space. The development team expects the building to be available for occupancy in early 2018.
